Bars and Restaurants Owned By Hollywood's Hottest Stars

From Eva Longoria to Zach Braff, see which stars are taking a bite out of the food industry


Although the actress might have gotten famous playing a bartender in Coyote Ugly, in real life she owns two Manhattan restaurants: the newer Jack's Wife Freda, in Soho, as well as Employees Only, which opened in 2005 in the West Village. At Jack's, owners Dean and Maya Jankelowitz are proprietors and co-owners, and hail from Israel and South Africa, respectively. The food at this cozy, locally loved spot takes its cues from the owners' roots: Along with standards like burgers and mussels, they've woven in dishes like matzoh ball soup, fried fish balls and African peri-peri (flame grilled) chicken.
